Frostbiters 2014 NR

Blizzards, icy waters, freezing temperatures. Sailing? Frostbiting!! "Frostbiters" looks at a very unique group of sailors, who race while fighting fierce wind chills, ice and assured hypothermia. The boats can be as small as a floor mat. The water can get as cold as 18 degrees - without freezing!! But never mind that... They love every minute of it!

I really liked it, I'm a frostbiter and I've sailed at several of the places featured so it was easy to love. The quality of the film was great, background on the boats really interesting. For me, it had a lot of really short shots, each scene was like two seconds long and in a way it reminded me of a movie trailer in its pace, which is awesome for a movie trailer but if it were up to me for a movie, I'dve loved to see it maybe follow one person through a season, or something more like a plot. Not instead of what was done, what was done was great, but maybe interspersed with it, just so there was bit more of something tying the film together. It kind of seemed to show an icy scene and say 'it's cold but some people love to sail enough to do it all year' then do another scene like that. Again I loved this movie, I'm not trying to complain and I think it was a great job.

Anyone who has tried to video sailing events, knows how difficult it is to capture the action. If you stand on sold ground, you are too far away. If you are in a boat, you are rocking and probably on the wrong side of the fleet. Go-Pro cameras help in some situations, but it is not easy to grab action scenes with freezing fingers or beads of water on the lens. Thurston wisely had others shoot some scenes which makes editing more important. He did a good job making perhaps the only good short film of this sport. In these times of extreme sports of every kind, I am surprised that frostbiting gets so little media attention.

A great job of documenting the most rugged people participating in the best sport there is! Thurston has captured the essential spirit of these sailors that will not "not sail". The many hearty female frostbiters were under represented though. Like the one pictured here.
